Metro North is fast becoming a favorite when we are in town for football weekends. Great atmosphere, warm and comfortable decor. Extensive menu so there's something for everyone. Bang Bang shrimp app is great. So far after several visits, we are still happy with the service and food quality.

We went with a large party on a Saturday night. They were very accommodating when I had called that afternoon to increase the number in our party. Everyone found something that they liked on the menu, including the teenagers that we were traveling with. I was pretty crowded and they did ask us to leave pretty much as soon as... More

Ate here again and it was great as always. I don't live in the area but visit often and usually eat at least once each trip. Staff is always friendly and efficient and the food is great.

Went there for lunch, the food is pretty good though it doesn't quite manage to reach excellence. Service is very efficient but not the warmest. I would even go as far as saying it was too efficient: I felt rushed by the staff to finish and get out which I hate when eating out, especially at this price range. If... More

Metro North has a great Italian menu. Service is top notch. Nice bar with outside sitting. The wood look is great. If you are Princeton you need to stop by. It stays busy.

I'm kicking myself for waiting to return to this restaurant after a couple of years. Decor is lovely. Staff is amazingly attentive. The host was extremely pleasant. Now let's get to the real deal...the food. Bacon wrapped filet mignon smothered with mushrooms, risotto, green beans. Husby had Mongolian beef, mashed potato and asparagus. We did start off the right way... More

I recently met my daughter and son-in-law, along with my son, for dinner at Metro North. It took me more than an hour to get there as I live south of this location, but it was easy to find. We were seated immediately and our waitress quickly took our drink orders. The boys ordered beer which it sounded like there... More

Went with three other couples and had a great time--good buzz, friendly staff, and the food, while not fine dining, was very good. All eight of us were happy. And not expensive, which in this part of the world is a rarity. I liked the calamari appetizer and all the different seafoods in my fra diavolo were very fresh. All... More

Met,my sisters other half for lunch,close to his work. A casual business restaurant, with a good menu for all close to the business area in Princeton. Can have a burger meal or seabass. Very good food and good value with service. Business people the place to go, the rest if you are in the vicinity.

Thank Jayesh P
